Took delivery of my 4th M3 in Munich (Pics heavy)

I've just got around uploading a couple o teaser shots from our great european vacation. Our trip took us to Munich, Lauterbrunnen, Murren, Wengen, Grindelwald, Annecy, Vevey, Lenno and Cernobbio in Lake Como, Luzern drop off in Munich and stop over in London.

As a photographer I have taken more than 5000 shots. I will be posting some more. As a first timer in London I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone, I could not deal with the driving on the wrong side of the road though. I am glad I didn't take the car there.





Annecy, France







Junfraujoch







Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland (A room with a view)



Staubbach Falls in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland



Gimmenwald, Switzerland



Moonrise in the Alps

Envy you on all the EDs you have done. I recall the 09 trip you made which was the same time as when I was there.

I can see why you love doing it often!

Hey Jesal, good to hear from you. Gave up the Le Mans Blue for the Brilliant White. Love the color. It never gets old. There is nothing like traveling thru Europe in an M3.

Very nice shots. I lived in England for 5 years when I picked up my M3. Nice to see those pictures of London again. BTW, once you get used to driving on the left side of the road in a left hand drive car, its actually better I thought. I could see how close to the ditches on the left side of the road I was before going into them on old country roads there. lol!

Thank you all for the compliments. European Delivery is the way to go. I love to travel thru Europe and what a better way to do it than with an E92 M3.

Here are some from my European Delivery:

Congrats! Beautiful photos, really enjoyed them. Loved your choice of destinations too.

As a professional photographer do you shoot cars often? It always seemed to me white and black cars are the most difficult to capture but I do know lighting is a big factor. Do you have any suggestions?

I don't shoot cars, mostly people and fashion photography as well as motion picture and video. My suggestion is to use spot meter in your camera to get the right exposure on the car, the rest you can adjust in post. Also, I use flash to fill in the shadows sometimes depending were the sun is located in reference with the subject. You can see that on the second picture where you see the flash reflection on the front bumper.
